Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere. I got a lot of results when I searched ‘deny faith’ which wasn’t relevant.
Patrick Madrid on this very good radio show, mentioned the other day some young Christians who elected to choose martyrdom over denying their Christian faith.
I can’t imagine denying Christ either. But I wondered what the moral aspect of this is?
I would imagine that the statement they would have been made to read would not ‘hold water’ in itself. I mean, could one ‘fein’ this denial and go on practicing as much as possible in private, in order to continue to be alive and evangelise others, with a view to uprising in future?
Just interested in people’s thoughts. This is in no way a judgement on those who elected to lose their lives for Christ. I admire them greatly, pray for them, and respect them enourmously. I hope I would have the courage to do the same.
